Apple is set to announce its next iPhone at the Special Event keynote from the Steve Jobs Theater on September 10, plus news on the Apple Watch, AirPods 3 and more.
The event will be livestreamed, this time available on YouTube for extra convenience, so that you don’t miss any of the new announcements and reveals at a very pivotal time for Apple.
Of course, the main attraction will be the future of the iPhone, with a successor to the XS, XS Max and XR expected to be on show for the first time.
When is the Apple Special Event 2019?
The keynote will begin at 10AM PST / 1PM EST / 6PM BST on September 10, when Apple CEO Tim Cook will do his introductions.
Typically, these keynotes will save the best till last or at least later on the conference, and it’s likely there will be some general Apple-related housekeeping news up first, before we get into the big stuff.

What to expect at Apple Event 2019
A foldable iPhone?
The tagline for this year’s keynote is ‘by innovation only’, but just how much innovation this entails remains to be seen.
One thing that would certainly be ‘innovative’ (although only for Apple, not the industry at large) would be a foldable iPhone, which has been rumored ever since Samsung released their ‘Fold’ last year.
Reputable Apple insider, Ming-Chi Kuo, via YourStory, has suggested that an “all-new form factor design” will kick off the next generation of iPhone.
5G on iPhone
5G is certainly the way of the future, and so it would make sense that Apple is lining this up for their new devices. However, according to Kuo, Apple’s own 5G chip will not be ready yet, and so they would have to rely on a chip from Qualcomm to enable 5G.
Apple Arcade and TV
There will almost certainly be new details on Apple’s gaming streaming service, Arcade, as well as updates about what is coming next for Apple TV. Arcade is set to launch this year, and is confirmed to have over 100 exclusive games.
In addition to new devices, Apple often reveals their upcoming operating systems too, and iOS 13 has already been confirmed, slated as the fastest iOS system to date.
We’re sure to get a much more detailed look at what is planned for the new iOS in 2019 keynote.
There will be much more too and hopefully a few surprises included.But, one thing’s for sure, you won’t want to miss this Apple Special Event as the industry leaders share their current and future plans.
